Review: Forever Yours in Christmas Falls by Susan Hatler

Book Five in the Return to Christmas Falls series

Seven fabulous authors bring you this holiday romance series about a group of special friends returning to their hometown at the request of their high school mentor. Each book is a standalone, but read them all to fully enjoy the journey of these remarkable women and their emotional reunion with their mentor, an incredible woman who changes their lives and helps save a small town community forever.
 Heidi Reads... Forever Yours in Christmas Falls by Susan Hatler

My rating: 4 stars / I really liked it


Morgan Reed is excited to return to her hometown of Christmas Falls and open her beauty salon, but when she arrives to her rented business space she’s shocked to find it already occupied by Dallas Parker—her brother’s best friend, the guy she had a childhood crush on, and the one her mom blames for their family’s greatest tragedy.

With their landlord out of the country and unreachable, Morgan and Dallas must open their businesses together. But, no worries, all small towns need a combo furniture store/beauty salon, right? Ugh. As they work together, Morgan tries to keep her emotional distance but time and off-the-charts chemistry soon turn a childhood friendship into a blossoming romance.

Unfortunately, just when their relationship develops into something deeper, an unexpected crisis re-opens her family’s old wounds and the blame is on Dallas once again. Will Morgan’s sadness and fear pull them apart, or make her realize Dallas has always been her heart’s true safe harbor?

My Review

Lots of family drama in this one! I admired Morgan for choosing her own path, even though her mother wouldn't approve, and all the hiding/avoiding was pretty funny. Choosing to not shun Dallas is another way she's defying her mother, and the ensuing romance has plenty of sparks. They have a fun relationship even though there is some heartache in the past. Even though Morgan seems strong and confident, she is still influenced by her mother and trying to determine what the right choices for her life are. I enjoyed reading this book in the Christmas Falls series!
